Anticipation for the Diamond Bar’s Denis R. Paul Aquatic Center will end at the start of the upcoming year. The $10.7 million 12- lane swimming pool is planned to open not only for DB’s swimming team, but also for the future water polo team.

After the opening of the new pool, DB swimmers will no longer have to call Walnut High School’s pool their home. To compete with other school teams, DB is planning on recruiting water polo players for both boys and girls for the upcoming year. The water polo team will start in the 2014-2015 school year in the fall season. Davies stated that there would be no specific process for tryouts but informed that all the players will have to progressively get tougher.

For the first time in DB’s history, P.E. students will now be able to learn synthetic swimming techniques in the water. Students swimming in the pool will have the advantage of the new lockers and showers. Two fitness classrooms, new bathrooms, and rooms for coaches and teams will also be available in the building next to the aquatic center.

Unlike Walnut which spends about $30,000 a year to heat the pool, DB plan to be wise and profitable. The aquatic center is designed to be built with energy efficient pumps and filters as well as piping for solar heating to save money and the environment.

The aquatic center will feature a new modernized electronic scoreboard, an area for concession stands, and seats for the audience to enjoy the matches under the shade.

This pool will pave the way for future success for the Brahma Aquatics in swim and water polo. With a rich tradition in swim, the Brahma Aquatics will find a new home soon. The pool make more opportunities for public and other events.
